I had a baby!

It all happened mostly Wednesday night, so that at 8:40 am on Christmas Eve, she was born! She was 7 lbs 10 oz, and all I will say for now (maybe more later about the experience) is that whoever invented epidurals and started using them in childbirth should win the Nobel Prize.

Here she is with her daddy:

  1. Congratulations! This is wonderful. Enjoy this time. And natural childbirth with no pain medication is totally overrated.

  2. Congratulations to you and Mr. Arlenna! She is simply beautiful.Epidural? Hooray for pharmacology!Best wishes to you with your sleepless nights but endless joy!

  3. Congrats! She's adorable; can't tell from just one pic and the weight but it would seem you did a great job.When people told me to "enjoy this time" in my most sleep-deprived state, I wanted to do evil things them. But it passes. P.S. My birthday is the 23rd; make sure she gets non-Christmas wrapped presents when she's old enough to care.

  4. P.S. If you're looking for something to read while late-night nursing, you spurred me to write this post about one of the pioneers of epidural anesthesia in obstetrics.#sciencebloggergeek

  5. Congrats! May your new baby sleep better than mine. I never surfed so much as when my kids were 0-4 months.Everyone says sleep when the baby sleeps, but you won't (or else you will never get anything done). So I will just say to remember that any day when you squeeze in a shower before 5pm is a good day! πŸ™‚

  6. Congrats! What a great Christmas gift πŸ™‚ hope all of the family are doing well now in the new year. Happy new year!
